So our DD is 3 mo, not our first, but first together the last one is 6 yo....so my DH thinks I'm a bit uptight or a over-reactor or worrier, and maybe I am. I'd like to think I'm like any other mommy, but I don't think he thinks so lol Examples of why he thinks I'm crazy; She still sleeps in our room, but in her own bed and I wake up if she breathes in deep, coughs, etc and get up to check on her. He says I jump up like a crazy woman, which I probably do, I just hear a noise and the first I do is go to check her. This morning, he brought her to visit me at work and was changing her on the counter which is about 3 ft off the ground and only about 3 ft wide, left her there and walked away to throw away the diaper. No she cannot role over completely yet, but she can get to her side and is very wiggly. He'll leave her on the couch on her boppy with her feet facing out, I ask him not to do that b/c she can pick her butt up and scoot down. We don't fight about it (yet) but he thinks I'm crazy.....So if I'm out of line I'd like to at least hear it from other momma's and if not how in the world do I tell him to quit doing these things w/o "nagging" or "attacking" him as I'm sure he'll say? Thanks :)

I don't think your overreacting at all personally. Some things are common sense. If they fall, it's going to hurt, so why take that chance. My first thought was "he's the one who needs to be a bit MORE "uptight".
And I can understand the jumping up thing too. It doesn't stop with the first one. I'm on my 4th child and I still check on them while they sleep and make sure all is well.
